We found some interesting jade in Aceh, Indonesia and thought it perfect for our GREEN SEA TURTLE. The colours on the teardrop shaped shell looks a little like the dappled light filtered through Pacific Ocean waters - love it!
Turtles have long played a role in mythology in many cultures - in China they are a symbol of tenacity, longevity and power; in Japan it is the God of sea-going people and in North America ancient belief is that the 'World Turtle' carries the earth on its back!
Here in the South Pacific the turtle, or Honu, is a symbol of fertility, longevity and peace. The shell patterns are often seen in carvings and tattoos and are believed to represent family relationships and the concept of unity.
The sea turtle is also renowned for its navigational skills. They travel great distances and have an innate ability to find their way home.
These intricately and delicately carved pieces are very special - if you like the ocean and appreciate the many creatures that live in it, this little pendant is a fantastic, eye-catching piece.
We provide these beautiful turtle pendants on hand plaited, Black adjustable cords.
